Your questions are confusing. Also if you are trying to "create a case" for an asylum, I highly advise you to stop. A frivolous asylum will cost you and no good lawyer will take your case. Make sure that no story is "made" to procure an asylum.

Agreed, absolutely do not contrive a frivolous asylum case. Having filed a frivolous filing can prevent you from having a "real case " approved later.
That said, anyone who has a legitimate asylum case must file before the one year anniversary of arrival except for a case of changed circumstances, whether personal or country conditions. Getting a waiver of the one year filing requirement is difficult. Asylum cases are very difficult to prove and anyone who wants to go in that direction should seek a highly qualified attorney.
Also keep in mind, If you are out of status when applying, you will be referred to the immigration court if the asylum office does not approve your case and then you may be in a far worse situation than you are now.
This is general information and no attorney client relationship is formed.
